I would suggest a simple solution:
I can have 5 --with-cpu configure possibilies:
1. single-lib explicit selection:
- --with-cpu=sfsparcleon : v7/soft |
- --with-cpu=sfsparcleonv8 : v8/soft |
- --with-cpu=hfsparcleon : v7/hard |
- --with-cpu=hfsparcleonv8 : v8/hard |
2. generic multilib:
- --with-cpu=leon : defaults to v7/hard
use [-mcpu=v8 / -msoft-float ]
at compile-time to select the hardware setting.
Is this a practical approach? It would only
require one extra file, say "gcc/sparc/config/t-leon-multilib" that
enables multilib and is included with configure when --with-cpu=leon is given.
I'll prepare a patch that provides such a setup.
